    One of my favourite things. Daughter has not seen it, so she cannot get her dibs on it.[​IMG]

    That is charming. From a quick internet search, very little of Louis Sosson's is in wood and most in the Art Deco style. Here's something closer to yours.

    Popsycat? Are you looking for information on this piece? Or did you want to just show it to us and make us envious? :troll:

    I was hoping someone would find something similar, as it is hard to find wood carvings by him. I found a carving of the head of christ, but that is all.

    Sorry. I don't have a camera and my phone is about 17 years old. I just carry it for emergencies. I have to rely on someone else for photos. Carved into her shoulder is L.SOSSON

    It is not easy to see it properly,my feeling it is not by him and it has been done by someone else. and his name has been put on it.
